I really loved the concept of this story and it started out so strong. I loved the characters I felt connected with them and I felt invested in their relationship for two thirds of the book .....Unfortunately the last third just didn't reach my expectations and I felt it was rushed a little.
I don't want to give any of the plot away but will say the last scene I soooo wanted Chloe to open the condo door and find Mr Black the other side of it and for the realisation of their final meeting couldn't possibly be the last.
I really hope there's a book 2 to follow I think there's so much more in store for this couple that's yet to be uncovered !!

This was much more than I had anticipated. The author pitched everything at this and it not only took it all the book fought back – this was two characters who were prepared to stand toe to toe in order to have their story heard!
Chloe is a loner, with no friends and a less than stellar home life, she is thrilled when she gets a new neighbour and the opportunity to finally have a best friend.
What she hadn’t anticipated was the connection that she was going to feel towards her friend Izzy’s father, Theo.
But in the blink of an eye when his world is torn apart, Chloe knew that she would be the one to catch him when he fell.
She would be the one to help heel his heart and to give him the strength he needed to be not only the father Izzy needed but the man she, Chloe adored.
This is described as taboo, but to be honest I actually didn’t think it was.
Yes, he was much, much older than Chloe but what’s age but a number!
He was her best friend’s father – uncomfortable I get that but your heart has no definition of time, no limit on the age of who it loves.
It was awash with anger, drama, passion and lust but it was sympathetic, empathetic, charming, sensitive and poignant.
Our hearts are meant to love and to be loved, sometimes convention may try to dictate the manner of how we control that emotion but keeping a love like they had contained was always going to be a lost cause.
The author did mix things up a bit and I have to say the ending caught me unaware. It wasn’t at all what I had anticipated.

Absolutely fantastic. The theme to this storyline might not be every bodies cup of tea, but never judge a book until you've read it. A love story about the spring of youth and the late love of summer. Chloe Knight has a heart of gold and a caring treasure. Theo Black should be off limits, as he is the father of Izzy, Chloe's best friend. He is troubled widowed, and a caring, but dark soul. Life isn't fair, but in reality it isn't. People don't always fall in love with the right person, or the right generation, but life can suck! A must read, that gives you plenty to think about. A lustful, love story, that results in an ending you can't predict, but it would be wrong for me to spoil an excellent book. Written well, by a talented author, who as far as I am concerned never fails to deliver a good full story.

A must read if you like forbidden stories, the connection in the book was so real and I am so glad Shanora wrote this book after writing at the start how she wasn't sure how people would take it! I will always remember Chloe and Theo. The story seemed realistic, it's not all rainbow and flowers, well none of it is really, it's just realistic. The HEA is there, but it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but i think it was what needed to happen, I liked Sterling and wish I got to read more on that relationship to be honest, and Izzy I understood her position at the end and her letter hurt my heart and made me cry but still felt a bit pissed about it.. my heart broke when Chloe said she would never see them again in the epilogue, like it just hit me how this book was going to end. I loved reading Chloe and Theos relationship blossoming into something real, but sometimes love isn't enough and circumstances get in the way so I'm not holding the ending against Shanora, BUT I do want a sequel about Chloe and Sterlings relationship, or even a novella, that would be so exciting!! Worth the read.

Omg this book was brilliant....sexy, fun, the love story of Theo Black and his 'Little Knight' Chloe.
Their love story is immense....brilliant and tragic!
There aren't many books I read that make me sob but my god this one did!
It's a great book and I would 100% recommend it!
Now if you don't want the spoiler alert please stop reading this review here!
I've rated this book 4 stars....and the reason I can't give it the fifth is the ending!
With a love like their's I was gutted that at the very end the author decided to make it so they don't stay together?! I was wounded, devastated for them! And quite a bit more than a little disappointed!

This book had such a good start but in my opinion a rubbishy ending!!! I was thinking it's got to end badly for someone for around 90% of the book for it to end all perfectly wrapped up in a little bow for EVERYONE!!! I'm sorry no!! So frustrating (aaaahhhhhh) it could have been so good but the last 10% just spoiled it, it was way too rushed and flipping annoying!!!
